Voyage Through the Spheres

Week 2A  July 26th – August 1st 2020
Silent Group Retreat with Pir Zia Inayat-Khan

The body and mind are a microcosm of the universe. All that is without is mirrored within. The sun, the moon, the planets, and the stars imprint their signatures in our forms and personalities. To awaken to the harmony of the spheres within is to awaken to the fullness of our divinely established primal nature, and to be quickened in the fulfillment of our life’s purpose.

In this weeklong silent retreat, Pir Zia will lead a silent journey through the stations of spiritual alchemy, traversing the interior landscapes that stretch from the obscurity of the unexamined life to the “fragrant gold” of the soul’s self-realization. Meditation, invocation, and sacred music will interlace to evoke ever subtler and vaster domains of being. 

For this program a supplement of CHF 85 is to be added to the “base price”
